Title: Swope Spring Clean and Work Day March 31st 9:00 a.m.
Post by: ekolk on March 11, 2013, 10:13:50 PM
The KCFDC is organizing a work day and clean up for this Sunday. Yes, it is St.Patrick's Day, I know. But I'm sure some of you would be willing to help with the bridges, the clubhouse, picking up fallen branches from the storm, trash, and replacing the plexiglass on the course marquee. Swope's good friend, Peter Engleman, has native plants to go in the OB gully areas. Mike Petrin has offered his saws, Pete has multiple tools he is bringing, but tools are always good. If anyone wants to work on the stairs to 14, we can get it going. Let me know what we need. So, it'll be a mixed bag for Sunday. The club will provide lunch and beverages for volunteers.  I hope to play a round as well if anyone wants to stick around after lunch.

I'm there Eric. Sounds like fun, and I'll bring my discs. If we can get more smiling faces we could all get done and get to that round quicker ;)

Would someone on this forum let Beer League know a work day is happening. I am sure they would look out for down limbs and litter during their usual Sunday morning round.
Thanks!

And, why doesn't Beer League have  an FB page? Is it outside their modus operandi?

So Eric. When you invited me to play this Sunday, was it a ploy to get me out to Swope for this?

No not at all. I set the course SHORT yesterday, so after the work is done everyone could enjoy some low scores. The weather forecast is not great, but as long as it isn't raining we should be good. Probably no painting for tomorrow if it is wet, but all else should be good.

9:00 o'clock. But if nothing else, come out for a round. We got a few peeps comin' out and hopefully the weather doesn't suck.

So, this morning the weather sucked. Planning on trying this again next Sunday at 9:00 a.m. I was out there for about an hour and  half today but barely made a dent in the work. Next week it is!

It would seem the weather has set itself against you again.  Maybe by June there'll be a weekend when it's not snowing/freezing raining on you.

You are correct. However, Swope has an event every weekend through the 21st of April, so you gotta strike while the iron is hot, or in this case, cold

I'm thinking about a space heater in the club house to warm us up.

Okay scratch that. I 70 is closed in Colorado and Kansas, so I will not be back for Sunday morning. Hopefully, I can make it back Sunday night and plan some ad hoc work during the week.

i really don't understand what you are moaning about.
Wait, wait. Took off march 4 after 24"of snow
by the time I got to Florida, it was sunny and 70.
Now back in St. Louis, more snow coming and you are getting dumped on just about now.
STL is soon after. Went to Crystal City Underground but Adult Easter Egg Hunt negated my efforts.
What is up with that?  Tomorrow, cavebound disc, assuming I can get to it.
Somebody send me a shovel.

Me and a couple friends played Jefferson Barracks this morning, got to crystal city about 130, played a round there and then finished up with a round at Quail ridge. Cave course was cool but I think Jefferson barracks might be my all time favorite.

Yes, Patrick and Chris stayed after beer league to work on the club house. I got the bridges secured for  the next season, but we still have the stairs from 13 to 14 to work on, and the lack of any restroom is getting to be a nuisance. Dan or Jack, any idea on when the P&R is going to replace the pissers, or at least bring back some johnnies?

Ben has worked out the details on the stairs and I will work with him to organize more labor than just Patrick, Chris, and myself. BTW, Patrick used the benefits from the mini for Mike P.'s birthday to buy the paint, and I left them with lunch and beverages from the KCFDC. Swope is a beautiful course. Let's make it more beautifullyier for all.
